TRANSHIPMENT AT KINGSTON
We are happy to state that Transhipment at Kingston is once more the generally adopted mode of sending to Montreal and Quebec the surplus produce of the Upper Lakes and their Tributaries. At the time we write, it is impossible to procure barges wherein to discharge the cargoes of vessels lying in this harbor, every barge being in full employment. Upwards of 50,000 bushels of grain are now afloat waiting for transhipment, while double that quantity is in warehouse, 70,000 bushels lying in Berry & Walker's storehouse alone. The brig Northumberland was five days in harbor, ere she could be discharged. This is as it should be -Transhipment is the life and soul of Kingston Business - give us that and a Brigade of Troops - and the beggarly Frenchmen, who rule Upper Canada, may stick the Seat of Government at the head of the Saguenay, or any where else they please, for ought we care.
